I've downloaded an AVI file and it plays back perfectly on my PC. When I copy it to DVD and play it back the audio sometimes has a tendency to gradually lose synch with video. Any suggestions to cure the problem appreciated.I use NERO to recode and burn.
Do you get the same effect if you play the DVD on the PC and the DVD player? If so it is the encoding programme. If not then it is the player. Are you actually recoding the video to a DVD format or just burning the avi file to DVD?
I'm pretty sure it's an encoding problem as I only get the problem after I burn it to either DVD or file. I have been using Nero Vision to create the DVD-Video. I tried altering the encode to 2 pass but it had no visible effect. At the moment I'm trying the same process using ConvertXtoDVD
In Nero Vision after you select the avi files click on "More" then "Video Options". Make sure video is set to your correct region, PAL if UK, smart encoding is at Automatic, and in the DVD-Video tab make sure Audio Format is at Automatic. Transcoding quality can be left at Automatic or try it at Standard Play with Encoding Mode at Fast.
Well, I've just used ConvertXtoDVD to burn a DVD and there were no synch problems so I guess the problem must be with Nero. The settings are as you suggest except for being set to long-play so I can get a couple more files on (It's a series)
